On Thursday 13th October The Rodillian Academy hosted ITN news as part of a documentary looking at IT solutions within schools and the new approaches that SMART are taking to introduce affordable packages; this will ensure that schools always have the best possible solutions to support teaching and learning.
The school is equipped with state of the art SMART digital screens in every classroom and in all breakout areas, one of the first schools in the country to embrace such technologies and a solution that is replicated across The Rodillian MAT.
Our creative approaches to learning through the use of these new technologies has meant that we have been recognized as a SMART Collaborative School which will provide intensive support and staff training to ensure our teachers can make the most out of the new technologies to support learning.
The response from staff and students has been overwhelming; we believe in teacher freedom and the blend of this freedom with the new technologies has meant for some very exciting learning opportunities for all.
We have now been asked to work with SMART to develop their national training materials.
The ITN news documentary will be shown in mid November.
